Tweet ...in the hospital. Klaw was readmitted this past Sunday with more of the same symptoms returning with a vengeance. After our geneticist consulted with an (possibly THE) infectious disease specialist, a 10 day course of antibiotics is the decided road to recovery. Salmonella is not typically treated with antibiotics as it may prolong the time that Klaw continues to the shed the virus. However, due to his VLCADD, it is of the utmost importance that we give the Salmonella a final knockout punch. He has to remain on D10 iv fluids and will receive the ampicillin intravenously. They are going to hopefully insert a PICC line tomorrow to make it easier on his little veins.
Klaw is in the absolute best of hands and we are hoping and praying for a speedy recovery (and for the clinicians to stop coming in the room every single time he finally falls asleep. Please.)
